He added that he is in good condition, but he suffers from headaches and imbalance and receives treatment that relieves these symptoms, but as a result of his previous lung cancer, he believes that his treatment period may need some time.
Zaki Fateen Abdel-Wahab indicated that he is preparing to conduct a brain mapping to locate the tumor, in addition to some medical tests over the next month to determine the extent of his response to radiotherapy, and then conduct tests to ensure that the lung is not affected by brain injury.
He continued that he was happy with the support of those around him, especially the role of Dr. Ashraf Zaki, the captain of the acting professions, without whom he would have faced difficulties in receiving treatment, especially since he did not make money from working in art, and his wages in his last two jobs were simple, stressing that he feels fine.
Zaki Fateen Abdel Wahab continued joking that he feels that cancer has become his friend because of his accompanying him for years, whether in the lung or brain, indicating that he cannot perform a surgical solution due to the spread of the tumor in different places in the brain.
He confirmed that he discovered the tumor by chance after feeling pain, and he did not feel annoyed until the first day of discovering the disease, but his spirits gradually improved, and he is trying to lead his life normally and go out to cafes near his home, especially since he is not associated with any artwork.
Zaki Fateen Abdel Wahab indicated that he will determine the possibility of continuing to participate in artistic works during the coming period, and that this will be determined after the completion of his medical examinations.
It is noteworthy that the artist Zaki Fateen Abdel Wahab participated during the month of Ramadan in two works, the series “Covid 25” and the series “Between Heaven and Earth”.
